Re: MORC revival
Absolutely nothing. Lost steam, people lost interest and spent more time talking about the glory days than actually going sailing. A real shame, the MORC rule made some good all around boats.

Re: MORC revival
What ever happened to this?

I followed a different thread for awhile, but do not look over there often. I did get some rules from WHL in a pdf form a while back, readable as I recall, I'll see if I can find them on the puter. Looked similar to IRC rules of today.
Then to keep this rule going, with out modified way out there boats, yes, one will have to have minimum manufacture rules, kind of like stock car rules of old to use in stock car racing ovals.

Check out the SA thread, lots of ideas there, we're still in the organizational stages right now, but plan (hope) to bring back the original rule to <30' LOA and have a minimum production number. This should eliminate the rule beater MORC designs, one off customs, etc. If not, I'm hoping the members vote on changing the rule to level the playing field.
We're shooting for a mid-winters in 2012 but need a lot of help. If you know of anyone with a MORC boat or who once was interested in the class, please contact me or the folks at SA. Spread the word.
Eventually, I'd like to see some offshore races set up for boat under 30'.

|paulk||If they can keep the contestants from creating aberrant designs like the ones that developed last time (30' boats with 15' beam; "hiking wings" inside the lifelines, etc.) it could be a lot of fun.|
